Why doesn't the left proclaim the CNN bias?

Like any credible news outlet, CNN is expected to scrutinize Trump and his incoming administration. But some inside the network have pointed to recent examples of what they considered to be an excessively hostile stance toward the Republican and his supporters. (AP Photo/Mark J.

Well, you have to understand that the last president free of the globalists was JFK, who was assassinated by them. So, right left, doesn't matter, they all support fascistic occupying Israel, which is the apple of the globalists' eyes.

I hope you are right. Sadly, you are not.

I believe the political descendants of those who assassinated JFK support Israel. And MSNBC, CNN and Faux all support Israel like clockwork.

Except for Fox, they all support the Muslim terrorists.

Why doesn't the right proclaim Breitbart and Infowars bias ? Maybe even consider that this might be possible.

? Infowars is a joke and I don't know anyone that takes them seriously.

Breitbart is unappologetically biased. They only exist in current form because of the extreme bias of msm. Breitbart makes hay by running stories msm will not.

CNN OTOH is not an "alternative" news source, and has been held up by the lefties as a non biased news source(see for instance the Simpsons perpetually mocking FOX but never CNN). Yet CNN has a crazy bias...however direct evidence of that bias has only come out on the past 10 years or so.

You must ask yourself, why is FOX perpetually compared to a propaganda station like MSNBC while that is never the case with CNN?

"Reality has a well known liberal bias."

For many decades "conservatives" have said that the media is liberal.

Take global warming or evolution as example topics of debate. Conservatives want these to be issues that there is "an honest debate" about. Liberals think these issues are settled and not particularly debatable.

SImilarly many conservative are going to tell us that we can even now (given current current tax rates) lowering taxes on the high increments of income, is going to benefit the economy. Liberals know this is a lie. (Not that lowering taxes when they are too high doesn't stimulate the economy). Why is this debateable ?

Trump is the most dishonst candidate we have ever seen.

Already Trump has flipped on many of the promises made to his "fans." He supposedly intended to prosecute HIllary, round up undocumented immigrants, or believed global warming is a farce. Did he really change his mind that quickly on these and all the others you will hear about soon ? Or were these lies that he told just to win the election ? I'm not sure which would be more disturbing.

Dig deep and be truly honest for a minute. Is it just possible, that some non biassed, extremely objective people have very real problems with Trump ?

Infowars I know declares its own bias, not sure what Breitbart says.
WAPO and CNN pretend they are objective
NY Times admitted they were on a mission to shut down trump

That is the problem with the new left- nothing is debatable- everyone who disagrees with them is "uneducated" "racist" "Sexist" "Homophobic" etc.
Indeed the new left are the new intolerants.

Breitbart has a bias, this is clear. However when I compare their stories to stories from CNN or ABC or CBS they are essentially the same. What's different are the headlines and the emphasis. Like today, covering Obama and Trump's response to Castro kicking the bucket. Breitbart covered the entirety of the responses, focusing on the difference between Obama and Clinton. CNN focused on Trumps very short and not very exciting tweet, contrasting that tweet to Obama and then finally covering the rest of Trumps response toward the end of the article. I understand this was just to make Trump look bad, but they did cover the entire story. I preferred the Breitbart format without the condescending tone and half-hearted attempt to withhold information CNN made. The HuffPo article was even worse, only reporting the tweet, and having to update the article later to include any real content

This is bullshit. I'm as opposed as anyone to the stupid SJWs that are not open to hearing alternate points of view. But that is not the same as giving time to people who want to debate whether the earth is flat, or whether global warming is real.

I voted for Trump because of Homos, ebt, Illegal Mexicans driving 65 in the fast lane on an open freeway, anchor babies, fat ugly dyke chicks, etc...

Illegal Mexicans driving 65 in the fast lane on an open freeway

More like 45, at least on the 110 south heading towards the 105. Traffic almost always opens up there, but f----ing illegals still drive at 40-45 in the fast lane because their dumb asses are scared to death of getting a ticket.

Seriously, I'd have voted for whatever candidate did something about that. Illegals shouldn't be here at all, but if they are they have no business driving because they clearly are incapable of following the rules of the road.
